Calum Carmichael: Law and Narrative in the Bible
March 22, 2012, 7 pm
Calum Carmichael is Professor of Comparative Literature and Adjunct Professor of Law at Cornell University. He has degrees in Science, Historical Theology, and Law from the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Oxford. His research concerns the relationship between law and narrative in early biblical material. This focus is reflected in many of his fifteen books, such as Law, Legend, and Incest in the Bible or The Spirit of Biblical Law. His 2010 book on Sex and Religion in the Bible will be followed by a new work this spring, The Book of Numbers: A Critique of Genesis. Prof. Carmichael is the editor of several volumes devoted to the work of his tutor at Oxford, the 20th century legal scholar, David Daube, as well as a memoir, Ideas and the Man: Remembering David Daube.
